chasing tomorrow

it seems to me that we are

forever

chasing tomorrow

with our calendars

and phones and day planners

and clocks and timers

and menus

and lists and

plans

so that we will be ready

R-E-A-D-Y

when tomorrow does come

 

and of course the irony is that

it never does

and so we continue to spend

our todays

planning

tomorrow

 

and rarely do we sit down

and have tea

for no reason

in the fine china cup we have

saved

for a special day,

sipping with our pinkies up,

chatting about the weather

and the flowers in bloom

and all that is

now,

in

this

moment

 

we simply cannot,

must not,

lest we be called mad

and unprepared

by those who are

really quite busy

and organized

chasing

tomorrow
